    Considering a 16gb vs a 32 gb Samsung tablet which has a microSD slot.

    What considerations would you use in determining to get the tablet with more built-in storage vs getting the tablet with less storage and adding an SD card?

    -- are there any BIG files that a non-rooted device will only allow on device vs SD? movies, etc
    -- is there any notable performance difference loading apps/data from SD vs device?
    etc

    In my opinion, if you have a micro or standard SD card slot more internal memory may be a waste of money. I have had 2 32GB tablets with hundreds of apps and a ton of internal associated data and 8GB is still the most I've been able to use. A decent microSD card rated at class 6 or above should do everything you ask of it. The individual apps are so small they just don't take up a lot of room and media is easily stored on the SD Card or in the cloud.
